A YELLOW weather warning for rain has been issued by the Met Office for parts of Devon and Somerset for tomorrow (Tuesday, November 15).

The warning is in place between midnight and 1pm across a large patch of southern England stretching from Portsmouth to Plymouth.

Chard, Ilminster, Yeovil and Wincanton are among the Somerset towns and villages expected to be caught in the heavy rain.

The Met Office has warned people living within the yellow weather warning zone that there could be “some flooding and disruption to travel”.

Residents can expect:

  • Spray and flooding on roads probably making journey times longer
  • Bus and train services probably affected with journey times taking longer
  • Flooding of a few homes and businesses is possible

The Met Office's website says: “A band of rain will move east across southern parts of England and Wales during Tuesday morning.

“Some of the rain will be heavy, with 15-30 mm of rain falling widely and as much as 40-50 mm over parts of Dartmoor and south facing high ground of southern Wales and the Marches and parts of southern England.”

The Met Office has shared advice about protecting properties from flooding and travelling in adverse weather conditions on its website.
